Apple Updates iPhoto, DVD Studio Pro, Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack Pro

Apple has issued updates to several of its applications, all of which can be downloaded through the Software Update preference pane or from Appleis Support site. iPhoto 5.0.3 fixes problems that cropped up after the company released Mac OS X v10.4.2 earlier in the week, but itis also recommended for anyone running v10.3.4 or higher.

While the Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro updates are simply reliability improvements, according to Appleis documentation, the DVD Studio Pro upgrade fixes several bugs, including isolated stability issues and problems with the auto assignment button in some templates.

Finally, Apple also released Pro Application Update 2005-01, which, according to the companyis documentation, "addresses several issues with underlying frameworks and shared components for Appleis professional applications." Apple says itis "strongly recommended for all users of Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro 5, Motion 2, Soundtrack Pro, DVD Studio Pro 4, Shake 4, LiveType 2, Compressor 2, and Apple Qmaster 2. This update is also recommended for users who have previously installed the FxPlug SDK."
